Leaf-Crowned Elder Discussion

Haha, sorry to bring up such an old thread (and from a different website on top of that)! You're literally the only other person I could find that's made a Treefolk/Shaman mixed deck and I feel like it might have potential. Well, one that uses both Harbingers at least.

As far as cards that are both Shaman/Treefolk, there's Bosk Banneret and Leaf-Crowned Elder that might work well. Neither would dilute the deck since they're shamans as well. Just not sure if the Elder is quick enough for modern. The only non-Shaman card I'd consider adding is Treefolk Harbinger and that's to find one of the two trees, depending on the situation, or a Forest.

Or do you think the deck would perform better without Treefolk Harbinger and Leaf-Crowned Elder?

Good work! Now, I can go a couple different ways with my remarks.

Option One: The Joke -> This would basically be me advising you on other cards to put in your current build. Like you said, your general is definitely not a real card, so I would treat this deck like a joke, and thus would suggest cards accordingly.

Option Two: A Real Deck -> With some color modification, Doran, the Siege Tower would be an excellent general for you. Granted, you wouldn't run actual walls, as they still couldn't attack (except for when you have Wakestone Gargoyle, Rolling Stones, or Assault Formation). However, it is of a similar mindset. Creatures with big booties, such as Lagonna-Band Trailblazer, Nyx-Fleece Ram, and Skinshifter, become quite good with Doran around. Also, various other treefolk such as Indomitable Ancients, Leaf-Crowned Elder, Unstoppable Ash, and Treefolk Harbinger. Not to mention the often untapped and always fetchable Murmuring Bosk. That's all I'll say for the moment on that. Lemme know if that's a direction you'd like to go!

I think at that point you may as well turn it into/play a Tooth and Nail deck.

The enchantment ramp is nice to quickly play big creatures but Dauntless Dourbark and Dungrove Elder work better if we have ramp that actually pulls lands out of our deck and onto the battlefield.

I'm hesitant to add in any non-Treefolk or non-Shaman spells so as to maximize the amount of cards hit by Leaf-Crowned Elder. Each Kinship trigger we can get basically gives us a free spell and essentially an extra draw at the start of the turn.

I've been recently trying out a version with Cream of the Crop. Although it's not a Treefolk or Shaman card, it complements Leaf-Crowned Elder well by helping shape your draws so that a creature is always on top. I've also thrown a few more higher-powered Treefolk in so we can dig deeper with each trigger. I may update the decklist soon with this new version if it continues to play well

So i24 I've actually playtested this deck with both Kalonian Twingrove and Leaf-Crowned Elder. Kalonian Twingrove was too slow when I had it in the deck and Leaf-Crowned Elder was too inconsistent. I will say that it felt great to get a hit with it though.

Kalonian Twingrove, Leaf-Crowned Elder and Ghoultree are also great for this deck

@HarrisonHarry: You need more 4-ofs. I would play something like this:

4x Arbor Elf
4x Dauntless Dourbark
4x Dungrove Elder
2x Kalonian Twingrove
2x Primeval Titan
4x Sakura-Tribe Elder
4x Bosk Banneret
2x Timber Protector
3x Leaf-Crowned Elder
29 Creatures

2x Lignify
2x Harmonize
4x Utopia Sprawl
8 Other Spells

4x Blighted Woodland
2x Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx
17x Forest
23 Lands

You also may not need Arbor Elf if you don't want to use Utopia Sprawl. In that case, I'd play 4 Treefolk Harbingers and 4 Ulvenwald Trackers.

Treefolk Harbinger would also fit like a glove, even as a 4-of, since it can fetch both cards you need to get the ball rolling Bosk Banneret and Leaf-Crowned Elder + Forest if needed. I dare say it could greatly improve consistensy.

Wooow that should really help with presence on the board. Especially if you copy Leaf-Crowned Elder
